Hmmm, I wonder if crocheting in the bath would work...

That's one thing that's always irritated me- I just can't combine a long soak in the bath with working on one of my many crochet projects

i was probably about 4 when i learnt how to crochet. my mom used to sit with me and my brother and crochet us winter stuff. she would have me hand make the beginging chain then eventually taught me how to single crochet. it wasnt untill a couple years ago that i got real into it and started making christmas gifts, blankets, scarfs, hats mittens, and now im making care bears.

i decided on my own that i wanted to learn. i didn't know anyone who did it, but my mom had an old needlecraft book.that was before knitting and crochet was all the rage. i furtively went into a yarn store and asked what i needed to get started. then i just started making hats- taught a few friends too.

At work, last year.  My co-worker made a pretty scarf out of fun fur and offered to teach me.  So I did a long fuzzy narrow scarf, then made another scarf out of yarn from a kit.  Then I stopped for a while, but we (a group at my office) decided that we wanted to do squares for "Warm Up America" and a bunch of us are learn/re-learn, or are just plain old inspired to crochet.

However,  my grandmother might have taught me to crochet when I was child and I don't remember it.  She was amazing at it, and I still have stuff from her around here.  When my co-worker was trying to teach me, it was more like re-learning something I already knew rather than a new skill.

Any now I got 3 squares done for "Warm Up America" and started a shawl following an easy pattern I found on here.  I also have an idea to do a afghan for my house too. So I guess you can say I am starting to get hooked...

Howdy craftsters!!

I learned to crochet when i was 7, I spent my wicked youth hanging around the library and found a book that taught crocheting, knitting and tatting. That was almost 30 (OMG!  Shocked *whimper* ) years ago and I'm still doing all three and have added embroidery, bead embroidery, bead looming, bead stringing, sewing, hairpin lace, polymer clay and just general crafting to my repertoire since. But that one book gave me hours and days and years of pleasure, long after the book was returned...I wonder how many other people it has taught since then....

I started about 2 years ago when I broke my leg. We lived in a third floor apartment with no elevator, right across the street from a Michaels, so it was crafts and soaps for me for 2 months. Now I'm living up in Northern Canada, so I'll definitely be spending a lot of my dark days with a crochet hook and some yarn!

I taught myself about a year and half ago, not sure why really, i think i just needed a new hobby being a sahm, lol.
i read some books from the library and bought one of the learn to kits that had some hooks and a learn to book. 
Since then I have made numerous babies items, blankies, and my current WIP is a sweater for my husband, which he can not wait to wear!

Are you using the pattern book from Wal-Mart to make to Care Bears? I ask because I just bought it, but I'm a beginner and the Bears seem kind of advanced. What level would you consider them to be on?
